Would recommend that you STAY AWAY from this doctor who was not very thorough. He could have at least paid attention to his test results that ended with the sudden death of my husband!

My son was told he needed a kidney transplant. He was referred to Dr. Griffin for AVF surgery. Dr.Griffin has performed two surgeries in attempt to create an AVF which is needed for dialysis. Both surgeries have been failures. My son's need for a dialysis access depends on the success on one last surgical attempt. If surgery fails again, he has no other options for a dialysis access in his arm. I'm a frightened mother questioning Dr. Griffin's surgical capabilities.
